An employee of a supermarket in Vienna, Austria, discovered a novel method for adding to his personal collection of pornography: If he caught female customers in the act of shoplifting, he allowed them to go free only if they posed naked for photographs.

His master plan, however, didn't last long, reports Reuters. Police conducted a search of the man's office and, after coming upon his cache of nude photographs, arrested the amateur pornographer.

He was also accused of forcing the women to pay him $66 each, to compensate for the items they stole and administrative costs. But according to a statement from Vienna police, the scheme got even worse -- he refused to reimburse the store, and pocketed the money himself.

The supermarket sleazebag is 37 years old.
